    Duck is very slow and seems stunned

    I was on a trip this week, and I got back on Friday. I went to the barn and there was two dead ducks. I called my dad, who had been looking after them, and he said there hadn't been anything wrong on Thursday. We took them out of the pen, but than I noticed another problem. One other duck was...

    Ok, but will -40 degree temperatures have any effect on it?

    Water bowl that only allows beak?

    My rooster has frostbite on his comb and I am a little bit worried. One thing I read to do is make sure that chickens can only put there beak in the water, or else there comb will become wet and this can cause frostbite. I am going to try to get more ventilation in the coop. But my question is...

    Chicken Behavior

    They'll be fine. The bantam and Beatrice will get used to each other. When my duck hatches ducklings, I always end up giving them to different people, and they get along fine.

    Simple nesting boxes?

    I just bought a few more hens yesterday and I need a quick and simple nesting box idea. I was thing something with a bucket or milk crate. Nothing fancy, just something I can make with some extra material I find around the barn. Thanks!

    Duck sitting on eggs only sometimes

    The chicken stopped sitting today. She went to the corner at night when all the chickens went in, but she was out free ranging all day.

    Duck sitting on eggs only sometimes

    I have a duck who only sits on the eggs when she is locked up in her coop. When I let her out to free range, she follows the drake around. They are best friends and don't like to be separated. How can I get her to stay on the nest when the drake goes out side to free range. Also, I have a...

    Daily duck care

    Yes, they would need a LOT of water. Just get a good feeder that can hold lots. The waterer needs to hold a whole lot more. I have a kiddie pool for mine, and they drink out of that. Also, it would depend on how long you go on vacation.

    Daily duck care

    Not that much time. Give them some feed, water and maybe put down some new bedding. If you wan't you can put out a little kiddie pool and they will love that!
